I think you should protect the rx antennas and cover the FPV antenna.

I saw your buld "Silver Bullet" and some others builds using the antennas with zip-ties on the arms.
How about the range with this placement?
The antennas are close to the props, but the air flux is pushing the antennas away, right?

I myself like the '' on the arm'' method of mounting the antennas. JMO but I think it allows for a cleaner signal and keeps the antennas safer. As for range, most of my builds have been with Futaba receivers '' known for good range.'' Silver Bullet was my first build using the Taranis XM plus and I haven't pushed it past 300 meters yet.

With a naked GoPro or the SMO 4k you can capture some great stabilized footage. In this guide I'll show you..
